Lux believes that ongoing education is crucial to all practitioners, even more so for teachers. Since 2012, he has been offering a training to teachers whose passion is gaining knowledge and increasing aptitude.
In addition to the physical practice, participants will study:
• Methods of communication & partnering
• How to evaluate, diagnose, and offer students the greatest change in their practice without overwhelming them
• Acro mechanics and the methods of communicating them
• Softer skills including conflict resolution, leadership, and community support
This training focuses on techniques that will serve your students long-term. This is the essence of teaching: serve your students. Come learn how to teach with greater efficacy.
As in the past, there will be required reading and discussion of ethics of teaching and personal conduct as a teacher and community leader. Participants will be required to adhere to a code of conduct and a commitment to foster a culture of safe and progressive learning.

Alex is here to Support our discussions and Diane: Finding my yoga practice connected me to a place within me that I hadn't realized I was disconnected from. It created the foundation for me to expand my awareness and take accountability for my healing, allowing me to work through emotional and physical trauma, as well as the every life stressors. I would love to share this gift with you and help you to discover how to live life from an authentic place.
